---------------------------------------------------
Excerpt from Morton Montgomery's Historical and Biographical Annals of Berks County, Pennsylvania
---------------------------------------------------

Daniel R. Bechtel was educated in the township schools and his home training was along agricultural lines. In 1871 he began clerking in the general store of William Gernand, of Breinigsville, Pa., where he remained one year. In 1872 he went to Zionsville, in Lehigh county, where he bought out Frank N. Gery, and he conducted the store four years. In 1876 he located at Huff's Church, in Berks county, where he has built up a fine business, carrying on a general store to the present time, a period of thirty-two years. His stock is good and his customers are always well pleased. He resides in a large brick residence which he built in 1890. The well kept lawn adds to the attractive appearance of this, one of the finest places in the township.

In politics Mr. Bechtel is a Republican, and from 1876 to 1890 he was postmaster at Huff's Church. He and his family are Lutheran members of Huff's Church. Mr. Bechtel married Sally Ann Biddenbender, daughter of Samuel and Catharine (Berkey) Biddenbender, and granddaughter of Jacob and Susanna (Young) Biddenbender.
